Broncos Sign Draft Pick; Waive RB Mike Bell

By  | 

The Denver Broncos have signed center Kory Lichtensteiger and waived running back Mike Bell and kicker Garrett Hartley.

The Broncos chose Lichtensteiger in the fourth round (108th overall) of this year's draft from Bowling Green State University. The terms of the deal announced today weren't disclosed.

The Broncos have signed six of their nine draft selections.

Lichtensteiger earned All-Mid-American Conference honors during each of his four seasons at Bowling Green. He was a four-year starter for the Falcons, tying the school's career record with 48 starts.

Bell was in his third year. He rushed for 680 yards on 163 carries -- a 4.2 average -- with eight touchdowns in 20 games with the Broncos.

Hartley, a rookie, signed with the Broncos in April as a college free agent.
